60655 Blog

I just wanted to write a post to clarify my intention when starting this blog. I did it to give all 60655ers a forum to express their concerns about the neighborhood, to post news about the neighborhood and whatever else came to mind. This blog is supposed to be a positive thing. Please remember that this is a blog, not a news website. I moderate it, but ideas, news, concerns etc. come from you. Most post titles came from comments. I am a normal person, not a cop, reporter, the alderman or the mayor. I try to post whatever you comment on. I cannot confirm right away every piece of information that comes in and hope that you as readers can help with that and some have. Usually it takes me a couple of days to confirm something that is posted. Please take most of what you're reading with a grain of salt.

I also do make mistakes and sometimes things can get posted that shouldn't be and I appreciate it when called to the carpet on it.

I believe that this blog is a good thing and I am trying to make a difference. Over 1400 hits have been recorded in the 20 days this blog has been up and running. I hope that I am doing well and realize that I cannot please everyone. Everyone here has a choice of reading the blog or not. Thank you for your continued support.

Sorry I didn't know that I was supposed to find the news myself. I'll make sure I follow everyone in neighborhood from now on to find original stuff.

Also, I don't steal it, as 1) I recognize the site it was taken from and 2) get it straight, most comes from the Southtown, not the Suntimes, I don't read the Suntimes. Like I said, it's your choice to read it. If you don't like what is posted, then don't read it. Thanks.

You are doing a great job, a real service for the neighborhood! If we all just ignore the cry babies (here and everywhere else) they'll get tired and eventually go away. Hopefully sooner than later! Thanks for the blog and the time and effort you put into it.

To the person who posted about the sexual assault:

Please proofread your work before you post, I had a hard time figuring out what you were trying to say. Before you type back that I am an idiot, this is not a dig at you, I just mean, double check your work.
